Just call her Mrs. Perfectly Fine. Sophie Turner has always taken any chance she could to playfully troll her husband Joe Jonas, so of course, she had to take things to the next level when she attended the opening weekend of his Jonas Brothers tour. To really rub some salt in the wound, Turner unleashed her inner Taylor Swift fan and wore a “Mr. Perfectly Fine” friendship bracelet to the concert — you know, the song all about how Jonas and Swift’s messy breakup.
Thanks to their omnipresence at Swift’s Eras Tour, friendship bracelets have also quickly taken over the Jonas Brothers’ The Tour, with superfans trading tons of handmade pieces with that spell out important JoBro phrases. Naturally, Joe’s wife received a treasure trove of bracelets when she showed up to the tour’s first show at Yankee Stadium in New York City on Aug. 12. She showed off her haul in an Instagram post a few days later, and one bracelet in particular stood out among the rest.
A fan that gave Turner her bracelet confirmed that she was indeed wearing a “Mr. Perfectly Fine” bracelet at the event.

In case you didn’t know, “Mr. Perfectly Fine” is one of Swift’s most brutal diss tracks about Jonas, detailing the “casually cruel” way that he dumped her back in 2008. As Swift herself infamously revealed, Jonas ended their relationship in a 25-second phone call all of the sudden. “Mr. Perfectly Fine” didn’t see the light of day for 13 years, before Swift finally released it in 2021 as a vault track on her Fearless (Taylor’s Version) re-release.

Despite Swift being Jonas’ ex, Turner has always been a huge fan of the singer. In fact, she even showed her love for “Mr. Perfectly Fine” when it was first released. “It’s not NOT a bop,” Turner wrote on Instagram at the time, prompting Swift to respond to the post with some praise of her own: “Forever bending the knee for the [queen] of the north.”
Clearly, Turner is perfectly fine with trolling her husband in any way possible, especially when it comes to going full Swiftie mode.In case you had any doubts that Keke Palmer is the clapback queen, she’s proving it right now. A month after her boyfriend Darius Jackson publicly criticized the outfit she wore to an Usher concert, Palmer linked up with Usher himself for a new song with a very shady title, “Boyfriend.” Before pressing play on the diss track of the year, here’s the whole backstory behind the Keke Palmer boyfriend drama that inspired the song.
Back in early July, the whole internet was side-eyeing Palmer’s man when he reposted a photo of his girlfriend wearing a sheer dress while getting serenaded by Usher at his Las Vegas show. “It’s the outfit tho.. you a mom,” Jackson tweeted. Palmer gave birth to her and Jackson’s first child, a son named Leo, at the beginning of 2023. As Palmer’s fans attacked Jackson for his mom-shaming remark, he dug his heels in deeper with more tweets defending his position. “We live in a generation where a man of the family doesn’t want the wife & mother to his kids to showcase booty cheeks to please others & he gets told how much of a hater he is,” Jackson wrote, before temporarily deactivating his account. “This is my family & my representation. I have standards & morals to what I believe. I rest my case.”
Palmer never directly responded to the drama, although she did release a new line of merch featuring the words “I’m A Motha” a few days after the tweets that fans interpreted as some pointed shade. And now, the shade is reaching its final form. Palmer is the star of Usher’s new music video “Boyfriend,” a move that is very clearly targeting Jackson’s Twitter rant.
The chorus is clearly a callout, as Usher croons about a jealous boyfriend:
Somebody said that your boyfriend is looking for me. / Oh, that’s cool. That’s cool. / He should know I’m pretty easy to find. / Just look for me wherever he sees you.”
But the ultimate diss comes at the end of the video, as Palmer wakes up in her hotel room and realizes she missed a concert. “Dammit, I missed the show. And I’m so tired. I am a mother, after all,” Palmer says, giving the camera a big wink after that last line. Check out the video for youself below.
